Default Wi-Fi Extenders


I want to increase my Wi-Fi range upstairs using a Wi-Fi extender.

I am using TP Link home plugs from eir, that have extended the range through the wiring network for some devices, but I would like to know what is the best Wi-Fi extender anyone has used to a good effect.

Re: TP Link WA850RE, 300Mbps, Universal, WiFi Range Extender

Got the above recently and it has solved my Wi-Fi issue, it just seemed to be confined to one room upstairs, but not anymore.


Happy Times now!
